About two weeks ago, we launched a 10 question survey asking you what you know about Belmont Media Center (BMC) and how you participate. It only takes about 5 minutes to complete and there's a potential for reward if you take it too! (We're raffling off a $100 Savinos gift certificate to anyone who put their name and email down at the end.)
We are still looking for a couple more volunteer camera operators for tomorrow evening's lecture entitled "In The Eye of the Storm." The presenter, Geoffrey Brahmer will discuss the lives, works and choices of six world renowned photographers who lived and worked in Germany during the Nazi Era. Geoffrey Brahmer is the Educational Coordinator for Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. He is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School and a fine arts photographer.
BMC has lots of classes ready for you in the next few months! With everything from introductory studio skills in our new Studio Production Workshop to advanced lessons in the control room and the field, there's something for everyone. For example, parents will be happy to see the return of our Make a Movie in a Day classes this coming February break!
You can learn all about each class in detail on our classes page, but there's a few new classes we'd like to specifically highlight.
